Scrap Aluminium Prices

HOW MUCH IS SCRAP ALUMINIUM WORTH?

Alloy wheel prices depend on a few factors. Firstly, if your wheels have tyres, the value is considerably lower. This is because the buyer will need to remove the tyres themselves and pay to dispose them responsibly.

Secondly, the weight. Larger wheels doesn’t always mean they are heavier than smaller ones.

Thirdly, if you’ll deliver or need collection. You’ll normally be paid more if you deliver your alloy wheels (click to compare)

WHO CAN SCRAP ALUMINIUM?

Everyone. If you have a set of old rims you don’t want anymore and feel like cashing in, we’ll try and get you the best rates. Mechanics and accident repair garages can often acquire damaged alloys which they can sell. Mobile scrap collectors and scrap dealers can also use our price finder to locate the best rates for re-sale. Car breakers can benefit significantly because of the quantities of wheels they produce (click to compare)

IS ALUMINIUM MAGNETIC?

No. Aluminium is not magnetic. Aluminium is classed as Non Ferrous Metal. If a magnet sticks to your metal, it’s most likely steel or iron and not aluminium (click to compare)

“CLEAN” ALLOYS ARE MORE VALUABLE

Don’t worry. This doesn’t mean you need to start scrubbing your used wheels. “Clean” alloys means that there are NO TYRES. Many scrapyards will also ask for valves & balancing weights to be removed. However, not all buyers. “Dirty” alloy wheels contain these “contaminants” so are less desirable, which adversely affects the value (click to compare)

Who buys [su_post field=”post_title”]?

Simply fill out the form with your basic information. It will be sent to every member in our network who buy or recycle [su_post field=”post_title”] in your area. These could be scrapyards and mobile collectors (click to compare)

DELIVERING SCRAP ALUMINIUM

If you have a small quantity of [su_post field=”post_title”], many buyers won’t collect due to the cost of fuel, time & manpower involved. Your best bet would be to deliver your goods to a licenced site. You’ll most often be paid a higher rate too. Your aluminium will often be weighed in front of you so you can see the weight for yourself.

But if collection is required, we do have members who can help you too (click to compare)
